Truly Enchanting
28 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This cartoon deserves more than 10 stars, but 10 is the highest this website allows. I had seen the cartoon on YouTube, and discovered that it was part of the 600 Giant Cartoon DVD collection I had purchased some time ago. No matter how many times you watch this cartoon, it will still bring a tear to your eye. It does to me just thinking about it. This cartoon is in a class by itself, and I believe everyone should see it. This cartoon ends with one of the best lines I've ever heard in any movie, cartoon short, or TV show: "There's some that sees with the eyes in their head; and there's some that sees with the eyes in their heart. And that's the Lord's own truth." I would love to have seen this done as live-action, although I think it would have been too powerful. It's powerful enough as a cartoon.

Some of Fleischer's lesser-known works are equally heartfelt. Like someone else had said, the Fleischers were better known for their character-driven cartoons, like Betty Boop, Little Lulu, and Popeye, all of whom had funny and wacky adventures, all good for a laugh or two. The lesser-known cartoons are the ones that tend to stick with you for a long time, and have a more heartfelt message to them. They're lesser-known only for the titles. If you go to any forum or question/answer site, you will find many asking "what was that cartoon with the blind girl and the doll" or "what was that cartoon with the brother and sister who were poor and dreamed of eating ice cream and popcorn", with a few people being able to provide the correct answer.
